Denise scored this wine: 88/100
Cava is a sparkling wine from Spain, using the same production style as Champagne. Traditionally made from macabeu, parellada and xarello grape varieties, the majority of cava comes from Catalonia. This wine exhibits aromas of citrus and pear and a hint of baked bread. On the palate, it is crisp with a pleasing fine mousse and green apple, peach and lime zest. Available for $15.55 at SAQ locations, it makes for a festive sipper or a reasonably priced addition to your Sunday morning mimosas. It also pairs nicely with oysters, salmon, poultry dishes and cow or goat milk cheeses.
